I’m Learning to Let Go, Open my Heart Wide & Receive. {Poem}

What does it feel like to receive?

To land in the feathers of wings wide open.

The acceptance of receiving,

the plunge into open waters, rich with lessons of acceptance.

Breathe in

breathe out





What is given shall be blessed.

It shall circle round—again and again,

transmuting and replenishing.

Stepping into the arms of another,

heart wide, drinking from the well of love.


The deep, dark expansiveness of letting go,

into purely receiving.

This foreign language often lost in translation.

Receiving, relishing in remembering how to receive.


Caving in, hibernating in the shadows of this grand gift.

Won’t you come out to rejoice again?


“Ah. It is here, a breath in, surrendering, heart opening, shoulders back, feet planted firm—I am open to receiving!”


For this is often unforeseen, unacknowledged, and most certainly,

exiled back to the hands of the giver.


The intimate romance of the giver and receiver,

eloping in unlimited possibilities.

They swim upstream through experiences,

tidal waves of remembering this lost art.

Let the grand gifts open you,

hold you,

and begin to receive.
